Per the New York Times, "Bush administration officials are voicing increasing anger at what they say has been Saudi Arabia's counterproductive role in the Iraq war. They say that beyond regarding Mr. Maliki as an Iranian agent, the Saudis have offered financial support to Sunni groups in Iraq. Of an estimated 60 to 80 foreign fighters who enter Iraq each month, American military and intelligence officials say that nearly half are coming from Saudi Arabia and that the Saudis have not done enough to stem the flow."

NBC Des Moines affiliate WHO-TV took six undecided voters -- two Democrats, two Republicans, and two Independents -- from different Iowa cities and allowed them to grade the Dem and GOP presidential candidates' responses to this question: "What do you think will happen when U.S. troops are withdrawn from Iraq, and what is your strategy to deal with what happens afterward?" The grades weren't too kind.
